  • Bring boiling-water canner, half full with water, to simmer. Wash jars and screw bands in hot soapy water; rinse with warm water. Pour boiling water over flat lids in saucepan off the heat. Let stand in hot water until ready to use. Drain jars well before filling.
  • Stem blueberries. Place blueberries in blender or food processor container; cover. Pulse on and off to evenly chop. (Do not purée.) Measure exactly 3 cups prepared fruit into 6- or 8-qt. saucepot.
  • Combine 1/4 cup sugar and pectin. Add to prepared fruit in saucepot; mix well. Add butter to reduce foaming. Bring mixture to full rolling boil (a boil that doesn't stop bubbling when stirred) on high heat, stirring constantly. Stir in remaining 2-1/4 cups sugar. Return to full rolling boil; cook exactly 1 min., stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Skim off any foam with metal spoon.
  • Ladle immediately into prepared jars, filling to within 1/4 inch of tops. Wipe jar rims and threads. Cover with two-piece lids. Screw bands tightly. Place jars on elevated rack in canner. Lower rack into canner. (Water must cover jars by 1 to 2 inches. Add boiling water, if necessary.) Cover; bring water to gentle boil. Process 10 min. Remove jars and place upright on a towel to cool completely. After jars cool, check seals by pressing middle of lids with finger. (If lids spring back, lids are not sealed and refrigeration is necessary.) Let prepared jars stand at room temperature 24 hours. Store unopened jams and jellies in cool, dry, dark place up to 1 year. Refrigerate opened jams and jellies up to 3 weeks.

To get exact level cup measures of sugar, spoon sugar into dry metal or plastic measuring cups, then level by scraping excess sugar from top of cup with a straight-edged knife.

    This is outstanding. I added 1 tsp of cinnamon to the batch because I tend to like the cinnamon/blueberry combination. Might never make another blueberry jam recipe again!

    Oh, sooo good! The fresh blueberry flavor really comes through without the excess sugar. It's still quite sweet...just right!

    Used frozen Oregon Huckleberries. Very good berry flavor, and very sweet!
